What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love being part of the most celebrated day of each couples’ lives. Witnessing true love on a daily basis while working with couples is such blessing. And it inspires me to live a life full of love every single day! We believe in giving back. Giving back in grace, kindness, in hours and in love. We also give back in monetary value to local charities. After each wedding we donate 10% of our profits to a local charity of the bride and groom's choosing. My most valuable lesson has been to “GIVE BACK” unselfishly. We are excited that you have considered Purposefully Designed Events to be a part of such a cherished time in your life. We simply can’t wait to meet you!” xo

    Alex was so helpful and asked a lot of questions i hadn't thought of to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. They gave us a lot of different options and really took to heart the image we had for our wedding.

    It was such a pleasure to work with Stephanie who designed the most beautiful seashells cake to celebrate an anniversary! We called late in the season but she managed to work us in graciously and relieved our stress. Nothing could have been more beautiful than the two tiered cake the color of sand adorned with white chocolate seashells filled with delicious chocolate caramel! Stephanie guided us in the decision process, was prompt, professional and just a delight to work with. Love in the Detail's cakes comes with our highest recommendation!

    Stephanie with Love in the Detail bakery was wonderful to work with. She is so good at what she does. I envisioned several small cakes. I showed her the colors and what I wanted. I feel I'm pretty laid back and I trusted her. I ended up having 5 smaller cakes at my wedding and they were all absolutely beautiful. Everyone loved having multiple cakes and multiple flavors. My dad went to the wedding during set up and he was so impressed because she as adding the lace detail and finishing the cakes on site. The were beyond gorgeous.... Oh and they tasted amazing. Stephanie is wonderful and also so sweet. You won't be disappointed in picking her.

    Haley, I loved creating your 5 weddings cakes. The lace touch was so beautiful and romantic. I am glad you loved all 5 flavors (chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, lemon, & strawberry). Tell you dad I said hello! It was such a blessing getting to make your wedding day beautiful and delicious.
